Monkeys #2

So here is the STR Love in Idleness yarn, wound up:


I think it looks even better here than it did in the skein...and it gets even better when it knits up!




I started this at knitting group on Thursday night and am almost ready to start the heel flap (just a few more rows). I love this pattern and it looks so great with this colorway. I sort of wish I was going to get to keep these...but they are for the swap, so I hope the recipient really enjoys them. I am making a point of not knitting super tight (like I usually do) and am getting a lovely soft fabric.

Pretty, pretty socks!

One day, I will own STR sock yarn. Oh, yes. It will be mine.

Ok, the question is........are Reese's Fudge the same thing as the dark chocolate Reese's you covet? I look everywhere when I am in a store with candy....(I don't know why-I think it has something to do with the years I worked in a bookstore and always HAD TO FIND the certain book a customer was trying to find but couldn't-or that I am OCD) If so, I found the mother lode and will stand by for your go ahead to call the choppers in.....
:0)
PS. That color is GREAT!

The sock looks really good. I have to try this pattern myself - but am working on a pair of socks for my hubby at the moment. I like the colour of the yarn too

So pretty! I love the color combination and the pattern really brings out the shading.
